TUMMY TUCK RECOVERY AND AFTERCARE

Tummy Tuck Dubai | 21 September 2021

Tummy Tuck Dubai

What is a tummy tuck?

A tummy tuck, also known as an abdominoplasty, removes excess skin, unwanted scars, stretch marks, and fat from your lower abdomen, and tightens your stomach muscles and remaining skin. It is most suited to men and women who have extra loose skin around their abdominal area, after losing significant excess weight or post-pregnancy for women.

A tummy tuck aims to restore a more youthful and toned stomach. It is not a procedure to lose weight.

What does a tummy tuck involve?

Your tummy tuck will be performed under general anaesthetic and will typically take up to three hours.

There are a number of variations of the abdominoplasty procedure and your surgeon will discuss the best option for your individual needs based on how much skin and fat you have to be removed.

A full abdominoplasty is for patients who have significant excess skin and fat, and muscle separation.

A mini abdominoplasty is a lesser abdominoplasty procedure for patients with a small amount of excess abdominal skin and fat below their belly button.

The procedure involves making a curved cut along the base of your abdomen from hip to hip. Excess skin and fat are removed, your abdominal muscles are tightened, and the remaining skin is pulled back into place. In a full abdominoplasty your surgeon will make another cut around your belly button to reposition it. The cuts are then closed with stitches.

Most patients can expect to resume normal activities after two weeks including returning to work. Strenuous activity however should be avoided for approximately six weeks.

You will fully recover after four to eight weeks.

You will have an abdominal scar that will fade over time and can be hidden by your underwear.

WHICH AREAS OF THE FACE BENEFIT MOST FROM BOTOX TREATMENTS?

Botox Dubai | 19 September 2021

We all wish to be the most beautiful versions of ourselves, both inside and out. More often than not, time catches up. While we may wish to age gracefully, coming to terms with the appearance of wrinkles on our faces is difficult. Botox treatment makes this easier! Within minutes, one is able to see a difference in the appearance of fine lines.

What Is Botox and How Does It Work?

 Botox, a brand name of a toxin produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum, is widely used to combat the signs of aging, such as wrinkles and fine lines. Small, diluted amounts of botulinum are injected into specific muscles. This prevents the muscles from weakening, thereby preventing signs of aging.

Botox Dubai

What Areas of the Face Respond Best to Botox?

While Botox treatment can be used almost everywhere on the face, some facial areas respond better than others:

Forehead Wrinkles

Forehead muscles are constantly used. As a result, they are one of the first facial features to show signs of aging. Since they are difficult to hide, they are one of the most common areas for Botox. Botox treatment for forehead wrinkles is quick, simple, and requires no anesthesia. Its effects can last up to 6 months.

Crow’s Feet

These are small, fine lines that extend from the corners of your eyes when you laugh or smile. Botox injections work exceptionally well in easing their appearance, giving you a youthful look.

Marionette Lines and Corners of the Mouth

These lines extend from the corners of the mouth towards the jaw. Some people also face the problem of a drooping mouth. Botox treatment helps combat both these issues.

Forehead Frown Lines

The lines that appear on your forehead between the eyebrows when you frown are called forehead frown lines. Often, these lines can make you look tired, upset, or angry. Botox reduces the depth of these lines.

Smoker’s Lines

They are also known as perioral lines. One may not necessarily be a smoker to have the appearance of smoker’s lines on their faces. A small amount of Botox can treat these lines that appear when you purse your lips.

Neck Bands

Neck bands or cords appear when the platysma muscles begin to sag. Once Botox is injected, it causes these muscles to relax and makes the appearance of neck bands less visible. Botox for the neck area also relaxes the muscles of the jawline, giving you a neck lift. One thing to keep in mind is that neck fat will not respond to Botox treatment.

Sagging Brows

Botox gives you great results if you are looking for a brow lift but do not want to take the route of surgery. By relaxing the muscles that pull the eyebrows down, Botox gives you an instant brow lift.

Botox is often seen as a quick and effective way to achieve a natural-looking youthful face. However, getting the treatment from someone who is not qualified can do more harm than good. To see if you’re a good candidate for Botox schedule an appointment with Dr. Vigo today!

WHEN CAN A TUMMY TUCK BE MEDICALLY NECESSARY?

Tummy Tuck Dubai | 17 September 2021

For men and women everywhere, the tummy tuck procedure is truly a life-changing experience. It continues to grow in popularity because of its ability to remove excess abdominal skin and recontour the body. While there are many cosmetic advantages to surgery, patients should also learn about the incredible medical benefits as well.

So, when is a tummy tuck necessary, and are there medical reasons for tummy tuck surgery? Dr. Vigo is an experienced plastic surgeon who frequently educates patients about the functional and aesthetic reasons for tummy tucks.

 

Tummy Tuck Dubai

Tummy Tuck Dubai

What does a tummy tuck do?

Tummy tuck surgery is primarily considered an aesthetic procedure. This is because it is designed to remove excess skin and tighten the underlying abdominal muscles. Most candidates who seek tummy tucks were pregnant or lost a significant amount of weight. If sagging skin on the midsection prevents you from performing daily activities, this procedure could be an ideal solution. During your assessment with Dr. Vigo, we can review the process in full and help you feel confident about your decision.

Medical reasons for tummy tuck surgery

Even though most body contouring procedures are performed for cosmetic purposes, there are medical reasons for tummy tuck surgery. Recommendations vary based on each individual patient and can be clarified during your consultation. So, when is a tummy tuck necessary? Read the following to learn more:

Diastasis recti: Women who have gone through one or more pregnancies often experience loose abdominal muscles. This is known as diastasis recti, and commonly causes medical problems like stress incontinence. Tummy tucks tighten and restore the underlying muscles.

Hernia: Pregnancy and childbirth sometimes lead to hernias, causing the intestines to push through the weak spots in the walls of the muscles. A tummy tuck could repair these weak areas and prevent further medical complications down the road.

Back pain: For patients who recently lost a lot of weight, heavy abdominal skin causes bad posture and significant back pain. If you are no longer able to support sagging or hanging skin around the waist, a tummy tuck can restore your mobility and make you feel comfortable in your body.

Other tummy tuck benefits

Most patients hope to combine their tummy tuck surgery with other procedures to make the most of their time spent under the knife. This is because tummy tuck benefits allow us to address multiple areas at once. Mommy makeover surgery, for example, includes breast augmentation and other treatments so women can feel refreshed and restored. Let Dr. Vigo know about your medical and cosmetic goals for surgery so we can create a custom plan moving forward.

COULD YOU BENEFIT FROM BREAST AUGMENTATION?

Breast Augmentation Dubai | 13 September 2021

Breast Augmentation Dubai

If you’re not happy with the size, shape, or symmetry of your breasts, you’re not alone. Many women desire improvements in these areas. Breast augmentation is a great option. In addition, this treatment is beneficial to an individual whose breasts may have changed following pregnancy or weight loss. Dr. Vigo has the experience and expertise to help give you the look that you’ve always wanted.

Changing any part of your body often comes with diverse impacts on your life. For example, body improvements often positively affect your self-confidence and other people’s perceptions of you. This often shows up in multiple areas of your life. Below are some other great benefits of breast augmentation.

Breast Augmentation Benefits

The primary goal of breast augmentation is to improve the appearance of the breasts. Despite the misconception that this procedure is only about enlarging the breasts, the augmentation process involves much more than making the breasts larger.

Adds Curves and Volume to Your Breasts

If you have naturally small breasts, augmentation can help you add curves and volume to them. If you aspire to feel more feminine and voluptuous, then augmenting your breasts may be all you need. Irrespective of your goals—perhaps you need to fit in a bikini top, or increase your breasts’ cup size, or make them curvy—breast augmentation will help you achieve your desired look.

Makes Your Breasts Even

Breast symmetry differs from one person to another. If you have a hard time shopping for clothes because of the difference in the size of your breasts, augmenting can help, as it helps you achieve symmetry.

Restores Saggy Breasts After Weight Loss or Pregnancy

If your breasts are not as perky as they once were following weight loss, pregnancy, or simply due to aging, breast augmentation can restore their size and shape. The procedure restores your breasts’ volume and shape to give you a perkier and more youthful appearance.

Boosts Self-Confidence

While most women undergo the breast augmentation process primarily to change their appearances, there are still many other benefits to the procedure. For example, like any visible (or not visible) part of the body, the appearance of your breasts can directly affect your confidence. The augmentation process can increase breast volume and size, and make them curvy—hence boosting your confidence.

Lets You Wear Your Desired Clothes

It can be challenging to choose what clothes to wear because of the size and shape of your breasts. Breast augmentation restores them to the perfect shape, making it easy to shop for and wear your preferred clothes.

COSMETIC BENEFITS OF BOTOX TREATMENT

Botox Dubai | 10 September 2021

Botox Dubai

You’ve probably heard about Botox as an anti-wrinkle treatment but the benefits of Botox go beyond cosmetic enhancement to provide remedies for multiple medical conditions.

You may also be surprised to discover that Botox injections as an aesthetic treatment can have beneficial side effects that combat mental health issues such as depression.

Botox injections block chemical signals from nerves that cause muscles to contract. Botox is purified botulinum toxin A, which means there’s no risk of botulism food-poisoning, and it’s an effective, therapeutic protein with a good safety record.

Now a popular cosmetic treatment, Botox was originally used for medical purposes and continues to provide treatment for a wide range of ailments.

Botox Dubai

Botox Dubai

Medical Benefits of Botox Treatment

Botox injections for medical purposes were authorized by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 1989.

As a muscle relaxant, Botox can treat various medical conditions, potentially reducing dependency on pain relief medication.

Medical applications of Botox include treatments for:

Eye twitching/squinting. In serious cases, eye twitching and/or squinting can be painful and impair vision as well as being annoying and a source of embarrassment. Botox can ease the muscle spasms and contractions around the eye that cause the problem.

Neck spasms. Medically known as cervical dystonia, neck spasms are caused by muscle contractions in the neck that cause your head to twist into a painful position.

Chronic headaches. Botox may help to reduce the frequency of bouts of migraines by relaxing muscles and blocking nerves that transmit pain signals to the brain.

Excessive underarm sweating (hyperhidrosis) – heavy and unpredictable sweating even when you’re not feeling hot or exerting yourself.

Lazy eye – the result of an imbalance in the muscles that control the positioning of the eye.

Botox may also be able to alleviate neurological conditions such as cerebral palsy, which can pull limbs inward.

A further medical application of Botox is to treat jaw disorders caused by temporomandibular joint (TMJ) problems.

Cosmetic Benefits of Botox Treatment

Time takes its toll on all of us, and the signs of getting older are most evident in our faces. Facial movements – smiling, frowning, squinting, and even eating – can result in wrinkles and fine lines over time.

These problems generally become noticeable when we’re in our 30s or even earlier, as skin gradually loses its firmness and elasticity, and the ensuing folds and creases become more noticeable as the aging process continues.

Botox provides a temporary solution in cases like this and can be repeated every few months. Botox can also be effective in reducing neck bands – vertical creases caused by muscle drooping.

An increasing number of people are turning to Botox cosmetic treatment as a minimally invasive alternative to plastic surgery.

According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), botulinum toxin injections are the most common nonsurgical cosmetic procedure.

Figures from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), show the number of nonsurgical aesthetic treatments rose by nearly 200 percent from 2000 to 2017. In 2017 itself, over seven million botulinum toxin type A treatments were performed in the States – a two percent increase in 2016.

Botox is routinely used to temporarily block nerve signals and relax the facial muscle contractions that result in problems such as:

Eyebrow furrows – folds of skin between the eyebrows.

Crow’s feet – wrinkles in the corner of the eye.

Frown lines – creases across the forehead.

Cosmetic Botox treatment may also provide a spin-off psychological benefit by boosting self-confidence.

TUMMY TUCK DUBAI – FLATTEN YOUR ABDOMEN BY REMOVING LOOSE, EXCESS FAT AND SKIN

Tummy Tuck Dubai | 7 September 2021

Tummy Tuck Dubai

Tummy-tuck surgery or abdominoplasty, can flatten your abdomen by removing loose, excess fat and skin and tightening muscles in the abdominal wall. It can also remove some if not all of the stretch marks in your lower abdomen. It is popular following pregnancy, massive weight loss or whenever a flabby abdomen with weak muscles impairs body contour. Most patients report improved self-esteem as a result of this procedure.

When to Consider a Tummy Tuck

If you’ve got flab, stretch marks or excess skin in your abdomen that does not improve with diet or exercise.

If the shape of your abdomen has been affected by pregnancy or massive weight loss.

If you feel that your protruding abdomen is unattractive.

If your self-confidence is marred by your stomach contour.

How is a tummy tuck procedure performed?

In this surgical procedure, your surgeon will remove your loose abdominal skin and tighten up your abdominal muscles with sutures.

Your surgeon will mark your abdomen to indicate the location of the incisions, the center of your torso and the location of the repositioned navel.

A solution of lidocaine (a local anesthetic) and epinephrine (a vasoconstrictor that controls bleeding by constricting blood vessels) will be injected.

Tummy Tuck Dubai

Tummy Tuck Dubai

The primary tummy tuck incision will be above the pubic mound, from one hipbone to the other. In a full abdominoplasty, another incision is made around your navel. In a mini-tummy tuck, your surgeon will use a shorter incision.

The surgeon will loosen the skin from your abdominal wall to your ribcage and then place sutures in the fascia of your abdominal muscles to pull them into a tighter position. This is the muscle repair portion of the surgery.

After your abdominal muscles have been sutured, your surgeon will remove excess fat by liposuction or other methods. Your abdominal skin is then stretched down over your incision line and the excess skin is removed.

Next, your surgeon will mark the placement of your navel. Although the skin around your navel has been moved, the navel almost always stays in the same place. Your surgeon cuts a hole through the redraped skin and sutures it around your navel.

Your surgeon will use tissue glue, sutures, staples or Steri-Strips to close the incisions.

In a full abdominoplasty, the surgeon will often insert one or more drains to prevent fluid buildup, which can cause pressure on the incision. The drain is a clear plastic tube placed through a very short incision below the main incision, which leads out of the body to a small oval-shaped bulb. Each time you empty a bulb and before you close it again, you will be asked to squeeze it to help drain the wound.

The goal of your aesthetic plastic surgeon and staff is to help you achieve the best results and to make your surgical experience as easy and comfortable as possible.

What are my options?

A personal consultation with your board-certified aesthetic plastic surgeon will determine the best option for you. Here are some different approaches:

Full Abdominoplasty

In addition to the incision across the lower abdomen, a traditional tummy tuck involves an incision around the navel. Excess skin is removed, muscles are tightened and liposuction may be used to contour the abdomen. This surgery removes skin from above the navel down to the pubic area that has been compromised by pregnancies, genetic laxity or obesity.

Mini Abdominoplasty

A single incision is made in the pubic area, which will be placed as low as possible and can range from a few inches to the entire span of your abdomen. Through this incision, your surgeon will remove excess skin, tighten slack muscles and possibly use liposuction to further refine the area. The ideal candidate for a mini-tummy tuck has laxity and protrusion below the navel. A mini-tummy tuck is usually recommended for those who have always been in fairly good shape but cannot achieve their aesthetic goals with diet and exercise.

Tummy Tuck Dubai

Extended or High Lateral Tension Abdominoplasty

If you have excess skin in the love handles or hips, your incision can be made longer to address this problem. The high lateral tension tummy tuck was one of the first procedures developed to address skin excess after significant weight loss or pregnancy. The technique uses a layer in the deeper tissue to support and maintain the repair. This procedure includes a tummy tuck in the front of the abdomen and transfers the lift over the hip to the side of the thigh to improve contour in this area, suspending and improving the hip and thigh. You can simulate the effect by grabbing the skin on the sides of your waist and pulling up as if you’re putting on a pair of pants.

THE BIGGEST BENEFITS OF FILLER INJECTIONS

Fillers in Dubai | 4 September 2021

Fillers in Dubai

Have you been ramping up your wrinkle cream budget lately? Have you been disappointed with the results? When it’s time to trade in the jars and tubes for a nonsurgical anti-aging technique that really works, most men and women turn to injectable treatments. Filler injections in particular can provide patients with tremendous benefits, including the chance to look younger without the long recovery time. Discover the many benefits of dermal fillers to learn what makes them standout as such a popular choice for fighting wrinkles, fine lines, and other signs of aging.

Filler Injections Don’t Require Any Downtime

With filler injections, men and women have the convenient option to fight the signs of aging on a lunch break and then head back to the office to finish the work day. This noninvasive treatment allows you to get real results without being laid up for days or weeks at a time. You won’t need to cash in vacation hours or sick time; you won’t even need to miss your afternoon meetings. Filler injections may sometimes cause slight swelling barely noticeable to others and only lasting for up to three days. Following your filler injection treatment, you’ll walk out of the clinic on your own and be permitted to drive yourself home, run your errands, pick the kids up from school, or do whatever you need to get done for the day. Simply mark it off your to-do list and move on with the rest of your busy day.

Your Treatment Results Are Instant With Filler Injections

No recovery time is a great thing, but instant results that you can see for yourself is an even bigger perk to filler injections. While it may take a few days to realize the full results of your injections, you’ll see a change before you even leave the clinic. Fillers are natural proteins that are safe to inject into areas of the face in order to add volume where needed and to smooth out lines, wrinkles, and deep creases in the skin. Just injecting the proteins into the treatment area will start the process and eventually, as the particles settle beneath the skin, the full results emerge.

Because of their instant results, filler injections are an ideal choice for last-minute improvements before a big, important event. They can give you a youthful boost in a matter of days, where facial surgeries can take weeks to reveal the complete result. For short-term planning, filler injections are definitely the best way to get the fast results you need.

Filler Injections Carry Little to No Risks

If the potential risks and complications of surgery have been keeping you from treating your aging looks, filler injections can give you results without the serious potential side effects. All fillers carry very mild risks with a low occurrence rate. These may include prolonged redness, swelling, and mild bruising near your injection site, all side effects that will gradually disappear. Many of the filler injections used today are completely biocompatible and designed to have a low risk of allergic reaction. Discuss your allergies with your plastic surgeon, who will be able to choose the right brand of filler injection based on your medical history. There are so many choices of formulas and filler compositions that your treatment can be specially tailored to suit your unique needs and provide you with the smoothest and lowest risk treatment possible.

Replenish Facial Volume with Filler Injections

Lines and wrinkles are key markers of the aging process, but so too is depleted volume from areas in the face. As our faces are subjected to gravity throughout the years, fat deposits from the higher locations of the face slide downward, collecting around the chin and jaw line. While filler injections can’t help to reverse this movement like a facelift surgery can, they can replenish the volume lost from important areas like the cheeks and forehead. Whether to fill wrinkles or to plump hollowed cheeks, filler injections are an effective way to restore smoothness and fullness throughout the face. Patients who have a gaunt-like appearance can benefit greatly from the added volume, sometimes taking years off their appearance. To design the right filler injection plan for yourself, consult with a plastic surgeon and voice any concerns you have about specific areas of your face.

THE BENEFITS OF LIPOSUCTION AND TUMMY TUCK COMBINED

Abdominoplasty Dubai | 1 September 2021

Abdominoplasty Dubai

For many women and men, a combination of liposuction and tummy tuck surgery can create enhanced body contouring results that meet or exceed a patient’s expectations. Although liposuction and tummy tuck surgery are often referred to as interchangeable treatments to help patients slim down their waistline, they actually are quite different in how they work. Tummy tuck surgery removes excess skin. Liposuction is a body contouring procedure to reduce isolated pockets of subcutaneous fat that have become unresponsive to diet and exercise.

If you have exhausted all efforts of a healthy lifestyle but still struggle with loose skin or excess fat in your midsection, liposuction and tummy tuck surgery could be the solution you need. To learn more about this highly effective body contouring duo, contact Dr. Vigo to schedule a body contouring consultation with dual board-certified aesthetic and plastic surgeon Dr. Nana Mizuguchi.

What is a tummy tuck?

Abdominoplasty, also known as tummy tuck surgery, is a fantastic way to achieve a tighter, more contoured profile. Men and women frustrated with loose skin, damaged underlying abdominal muscles, or stretch marks as the result of dramatic weight loss or childbirth can correct these issues with this body contouring procedure. It can be a life-changing surgery for patients, transforming the way they look.

How does liposuction work?

Liposuction is a popular fat reduction surgery to reduce pockets of stubborn fat in various areas of the body. Even healthy men and women who are diligent about eating well and exercising regularly can struggle with pockets of fat in hard-to-lose places, particularly in the waistline area. Liposuction can effectively remove fat cells from targeted areas without damaging surrounding tissues, leaving patients looking more toned, contoured, and slimmer.

Primary benefits of combining these two body contouring procedures

Liposuction is a go-to option for women and men seeking aesthetic help to slim down or reshape their body without a lengthy recovery. It is one of the several body contouring procedures that Dr. Vigo offers to his patients. The primary benefit of combining liposuction and tummy tuck surgery, also known as lipoabdominoplasty, is that Dr. Mizuguchi can address pockets of unwanted fat while repairing muscle tissue and tightening loose skin. Patients will plan for one surgical procedure and one recovery period, rather than two separate body contouring treatments. In most cases, loose skin and excess fat in the lower abdominal area go hand-in-hand, so treating both aesthetic issues simultaneously is often the most cost-effective and efficient way to get superior results.

THE BENEFITS OF POST-PREGNANCY TUMMY TUCK

Tummy Tuck Dubai | 31 August 2021

The arrival of a new baby often leaves a woman with stretched skin that cannot retract, and even abdominal muscles have separated in the middle (called ‘divarication’), a sagging or bulging stomach that no amount of exercise can counter. 

In 2016, it was decided that Medicare would no longer cover the abdominoplasty procedure following pregnancy. This decision had a significant impact on accessibility for the abdominoplasty for many women. These changes have been made without putting it forward for the general public to consider, nor were there any initiatives to consult medical bodies or medical professionals to give their opinion on this decision.

Tummy Tuck Dubai

Tummy Tuck Dubai

Currently, abdominoplasty, or tummy tuck, can only be claimed if a patient is undergoing a surgery for significant weight loss. However, this procedure is often critical for many mothers who want to correct significant functional issues that can occur post-pregnancy, such as chronic lower back pain and urinary incontinence in postpartum women. Reconstructive abdominoplasty after pregnancy restores the abdominal muscles and skin once it has been stretched. These findings have been confirmed by the study that was published in 2018 in the Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery Journal titled ‘Abdominoplasty improves low back pain and urinary incontinence’. To read this research paper, visit this link. 

HOW CAN A TUMMY TUCK HELP PREGNANCY-RELATED SYMPTOMS?

Tightening the abdominal muscles surgically in a tummy tuck raises the intra abdominal pressure and improves the biomechanics of the abdominal and spinal muscles.

The efficiency of the the thoracolumbar fascia (TLF), the spinal and abdominal muscles is improved which, in turn, stabilises the spine.

Increased efficiency of the Transversus Abdominis muscle an improves stability of the sacroiliac joint and alleviates lower back pain.

MRI shows an increase in the disc space and improvement of the bulging disc following tummy tuck.

ADVANTAGES AND BENEFITS OF BOTOX

Botox Dubai | 28 August 2021

Botox Dubai

When it comes to anti-aging treatments, Botox is probably the most widely known and trusted. While dermal fillers are great for replacing lost volume in the face and filling in the lines that result, Botox is better for resolving fine lines and wrinkles especially around the eyes and mouth. Here are some of the advantages and benefits of Botox.

Safe and Effective

Botox is extremely effective in combating fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes and mouth. It is most commonly used to treat the lines around the eyes and between the brows, but it can also be used to treat the laugh lines around the mouth. Botox works by relaxing the muscles that create repeated expression to decrease the effect of muscle movement on lines on the face. Botox can decrease the appearance of lines and wrinkles as well as prevent them from worsening.

Cost Effective

Of all cosmetic treatments, Botox is one of the most cost effective. Depending on the treatment area and how much Botox is needed to get results, you will spend an agreed amount on a single treatment of Botox. However, this is much less than most dermal fillers and more invasive cosmetic treatments for lines and wrinkles.

Botox Dubai

Botox Dubai

No Side Effects

There have been few reported side effects with Botox. Most people experience no side effects at all. The Botox active ingredient is purified botulinum toxin A, which carries no risk of botulism and is completely safe. The treatment is also FDA approved for the treatment of lines and wrinkles.

Other Health Benefits

Botox can also be used to treat a number of health conditions. It is believed that Botox injections can reduce the intensity and frequency of migraines. Botox can also remedy muscle stiffness and twitching, which can be an effect of several different medical conditions. 

Of course, your Botox treatment needs to be repeated from time to time. Botox results generally last about three to six months. If you are ready to try Botox for yourself, or if you are in need of a booster treatment, contact Dr. Vigo today for more information or to schedule your appointment.
